Oh Dede, I agree. That Swan is awesome. You did a very good job. The two smaller ones are extremely well done as well. Now.....make some ATC's like those!!
heheh Nick..might just do that. ;)Dede
Dede-So did you paste the images on and then do the spackling compound around them. And then watercolor on top of that when it was dry? I have never seen this done and would love to try it. Can you explain your technique here a little?And by the way I love these! And I would definitely love to see some ATCs like them.Julie
oh like the top two especially! unsure, but these are images on top of spackling and watercolored?
What a great effect, Dede. beautiful
Julie and cin, yes..on heavy chipboard, or something thick enough to hold the spacking..paste any image you like, or text, or papers. With a pallette knife add spackle and keep it kinds think for texture. Sand a bit after dry any areas you want smoothed or thinned out. I used Twinkling H2O watercolor cakes that come is separate little jars. Made by this company:http://www.luminarteinc.com/catalog/twinkling-h20s.htmlAfter that dries, I add a coat of gloss varnish for shine and to protect the spackle and paint. Glad you like them..give them a try sometime. :)Dede

Absolutely beautiful. What do you mean by spackling?Valerie
Valerie..the thick stuff you use to plug nail holes and cracks in walls. :)Dede
Love everything about these, the colors, the texture and the compositions!!!
